Faculty teaching in the new online program include Pharr, a 30-year fire service veteran who served as a firefighter, investigator, fire chief and emergency management director before becoming an educator; and Tom Thurman, a former FBI special agent who investigated the bombing of Pan American Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, as well as the bombings of the Oklahoma City federal building and the World Trade Center towers. Many of the EKU faculty members are certified fire and explosion investigators who are still actively involved in the field. In addition to authoring the industry’s top textbooks, they hold various leadership positions within the profession, including membership on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1033 Technical Committee, which writes the “Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigator.”
